These 5 cake recipes you need to make are so old I had to substitute the “oleo” or “margarine” with butter.

Prepare Your Family For Survival Giveaway

I’m having a Survival Giveaway today and I can’t wait to get a few of my books in ten homes!!!  Some of you may know I was asked to write a book called Prepare Your Family For Survival. I was honored beyond words to be asked to share my expertise on surviving any scenario a family may encounter. My book is family friendly and I do not talk about weapons. I wanted my book to be read by every age group. I understand the need to protect my family, but when I agreed to write the book I said I will have no mention of weapons. If you are wondering if I have a weapon, the answer is yes. Mark and I both have our concealed weapon permits. Can I protect myself, the answer is yes. Enough said.
